PRConnect Launches Blockchain-based Solution to Verify the Syndication of Press Releases

PR Connect

PRConnect, a leading content syndication and amplification service provider, today announced the official launch of PRVerified, its blockchain-based verification system for the syndication of press releases. Participating in the launch are leading online content publishers including 24-7 Press Release, iCrowdNewswire, KISS PR Brand Story Newswire and News Direct. PRVerified will provide readers with ready access to both the syndicated copy of the press release and the original source copy. The initial hash of the release is posted on the blockchain and can be rehashed through an intuitive, single-click interface to check for a match. The immutability of the blockchain enables PRConnect to achieve this level of irrefutable verification at the point of syndication. "PRConnect and its newswire partners are excited about developing and launching this innovative solution for press releases," said Wing Yu, CEO of PRConnect. "For over fifty years, the press release industry has relied on self-certified reports to convey that press releases are being distributed intact. With blockchain technology, we can now provide greater transparency into the content syndication process while giving all participants the tools to verify that press releases have been distributed in a tamper-proof manner." PRVerified is NCVP-compatible using the recommended SHA-256 one-way cryptographic hash function to tokenize the original instance of the press release. Rather than storing the hashes in a private database, PRVerified leverages blockchain’s inherent transparency and decentralization to store and share the hashes. After carefully considering various blockchain networks for reliability, sustainability, speed, transaction price, and overall environmental impact, PRConnect has chosen to post all of its hashes on the Peercoin blockchain. PRConnect partnered with the Peercoin Foundation to conceptualize and analyze the commercial viability of PRVerified and to design, develop, test and optimize the blockchain components of the application. "PRConnect’s latest initiative is perfectly aligned with our mission at News Direct to use technology to reimagine the way that press releases are distributed," said Gregg Castano, founder and CEO of News Direct, a leading wire services with over 1,000 clients worldwide. "We are thrilled to partner with innovators like PRConnect that are using blockchain technology to build trust and generate more visibility for our clients," said Qamar Zaman, founder of KISS PR which helps brands and content marketers bring stories to life on major news media sites. “We are excited to be part of a revolutionary technology that is long over due in this industry,” says Michael Iwasaki, founder of 24-7 Press Release Newswire. “PRConnect is leading the way with its blockchain-verification system that adds more credibility to our press release distribution company,” continued Iwasaki. PRVerified is now available for all of PRConnect’s clients and can be activated within one business day. It can also be accessed as a widget associated with the press release’s GUID and deployed on any Web2 site or Web3 dApp. In fact, PRVerified is already actively verifying releases on the 100 local media sites of the GoMedia Network. PRVerified will be a key component in an enhanced dashboard for wire services and content marketers that will be launched by PRConnect this summer. “It’s a pleasure to partner with PRConnect on this leading-edge improvement for the press release distribution industry,” said Sonia LaFountain, iCrowdNewswire COO. “This technology aligns directly with iCrowdNewswire’s re-invention of press release distribution and goal to ensure customers reach their target audience,” commented LaFountain. About PRConnect PRConnect is a leading content syndication and amplification firm that provides reliable service, innovative technology and custom solutions to help wire services and content marketers reach and engage audiences.

More Than Just a Room: How Airbnb Can Help You Travel Like a Local -- on a Budget

YourUpdateTV

Want to travel like a local, but on a budget? Airbnb is a great option for those looking to experience a destination authentically without breaking the bank. Recently, Airbnb Superhosts, Rhonda Voo and Eric Alan conducted a satellite media tour to talk about their experience being Airbnb hosts and how it helped them connect with people and have authentic experiences. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/6OnoHquTFMg In the current economic environment, people want to travel affordably. And after years of being isolated during the pandemic, they're looking for ways to connect with people and have authentic experiences. With the pandemic finally over, this summer is anticipated to be the biggest travel season of all time. Airbnb is expecting a record 300 million people to travel and host on Airbnb this year. To prepare, Airbnb is making the most extensive set of improvements to the platform ever, starting with the introduction of Airbnb Rooms, an all-new take on the original Airbnb. They’re also launching over 50 new features and upgrades that address top feedback from our guests and Hosts across the end-to-end Airbnb experience. Introducing Airbnb Rooms Airbnb began as a way to stay in a room in someone else’s home. This original idea of sharing a home offers two unique benefits. First, it’s more affordable for guests. More than 80% of private rooms are under $100/night, with an average rate of $67/night. Second, staying with a Host is a great way to meet someone new and experience the city like a local. In the current economic environment, people want to travel affordably. And after years of being isolated during the pandemic, they're looking for ways to connect with people and have authentic experiences. Now is the perfect time to stay in a room in someone else’s home. But for even more people to try it, they have to feel comfortable staying with a Host. Airbnb Rooms, an all-new take on the original Airbnb. Guests have told us that they want to know more about who they're staying with. Every Airbnb Room features a Host Passport, which helps guests get to know their Host before booking their stay. Airbnb has also created a Rooms category with over 1 million listings, redesigned filters and added new privacy features. 50+ new features and upgrades based on Hosts and Guests feedback: In preparation for an anticipated record-setting travel season, Airbnb is improving nearly every aspect of their service, here are some of the upgrades: Host Passport - Exclusive to Airbnb Rooms, the Host Passport helps you get to know your Host before booking your stay. Simply tap the Host Passport to view a larger photo and details Hosts have shared about themselves, including where they went to school, what they do for work, a fun fact about themselves, the amount of social interaction during the stay, and much more. Airbnb Rooms category - Airbnb Rooms are easy to discover, with a new category featuring a curated set of 1 million private bedrooms. Each listing includes access to shared spaces, such as the kitchen, living room, and backyard. Redesigned filters - Redesigned the “type of place” filter to make it easy to switch between Airbnb Rooms, entire homes, or all types of places. It’s simple to view the average price for each type of place with an enhanced price filter that updates based on your choice. New privacy features - Privacy is important. All Airbnb Rooms will clearly indicate if the bedroom door has a lock. The listing page also shows whether the bathrooms are shared or private, and whether people other than the Host will be in the home during your stay. To improve our service, Airbnb took a design-driven approach. They started by storyboarding the guest and Host journey - from sign up to checking out and created a blueprint of the experience - every screen, every policy, and every interaction with customer support mapped out. Then, analyzed millions of customer service tickets and mapped them across the journey. They also reviewed thousands of social media posts and spoke with hundreds of thousands of guests and Hosts about how to improve Airbnb. To find out more about the Airbnb 2023 Summer Release and how to become a host, visit Airbnb. About Rhonda and Erica Rhonda Voo and Eric Alan are superhosts of a private room in their stunning home in LA. Rhonda and Eric are both creatives at heart, pursuing careers in art and advertising – over the years they transformed their modest home into what is now an architecturally significant landmark in LA. After raising their three daughters, they noticed there was plenty of extra room around the house and decided to open their home to guests on Airbnb. Their experience continues to be rewarding — both financially and personally, making meaningful connections with visitors from around the globe.

The recent WrestleMania 39 had more than 500 million views and 11 million hours of video consumed over the two days of the event, a 42% increase over last year. The Publisher Desk partnered with Intermarkets to add Ringside Intel to its growing portfolio of sports, entertainment, and information sites, including the company’s flagship site, Sportsnaut, the most powerful name in sports news and information. “The Publisher Desk is a top-notch partner for our mission to give combat sports and sports entertainment fans the quality content they’ve come to expect from our brands,” said Intermarkets CEO and Founder Kevin Lucido. “This opportunity fits with Intermarkets’ strategy of expanding our businesses and harnesses The Publisher Desk’s marketplace power in generating expanded growth opportunities. Backed by the combined weight of Intermarkets and The Publisher Desk, these greater joint opportunities will grow Ringside Intel as fans’ destination for all things that punch, grapple, sweat, and bleed.” This launch comes a month after The Publisher Desk acquired Forever Blueshirts, the leading source of information about the New York Rangers, and six months after Intermarkets added Bounding Into Sports, a spin-off of the popular entertainment site Bounding Into Comics, which brings Bounding's signature brand of unmatched insights and in-depth coverage to the world of sports. Ringside Intel is not affiliated with the WWE, UFC, or any other professional sports and entertainment promotions.

How Does A Tweet Affect Your Business? FiscalNote’s (NYSE: NOTE) Aicel Technologies Can Tell You

Benzinga

By Jad Malaeb, Benzinga Turning abstract and unstructured data into actionable information can feel like a monumental task, yet it often has a great effect on businesses. “Reputation,” for example is an abstract concept that will likely generate a different definition depending on who you ask, but its impact is so important that it is included in financial statements like balance sheets (in the form of Goodwill and other designations). Similarly, sentiment, another valuable abstraction created from Tweets, “Reddit Storms” and Facebook groups, can often lead to a significant impact on businesses, generating trends, spending sprees and brand loyalty that translate into profits. But interpreting this information is a difficult task and using it to generate actionable insights is even more challenging. When trying to figure out how unstructured data affects one’s business and surroundings, it’s often best to consult experts. As a technology company specializing in the analysis and tracking of legislation and regulations in the U.S. and abroad, FiscalNote Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NOTE) is a preferred destination for some of the biggest organizations in the world, including the U.S. government itself – and its latest acquisition can help make sense of the flow of social media information and other unstructured data to get the most value from it. Interpreting Unstructured Data Using FiscalNote’s Aicel Technologies Recently, FiscalNote acquired Aicel Technologies, a rapidly-growing alternative data company based in Seoul, South Korea. Aicel processes both proprietary and licensed data, including trade and export information, patent filings and aggregated consumer and retail transactions, on a subscription basis for customers such as asset management companies, multinational corporations, hedge funds and investment firms. In the complicated task of turning abstractions into actionable data, Aciel is a specialist. The company uses advanced technology to collect, refine, process, and deliver tailored data to customers while also powering a data exchange marketplace through its Data-as-a-Service model. As an alternative data platform, Aicel allows users to capture value and insight from unstructured data, helping blue-chip customers like hedge funds, asset managers and quant firms capture alpha-generating opportunities. Aicel will augment FiscalNote's existing AI data products, including FiscalNote AI Solutions, DataHunt, and Predata, and its growth strategy by expanding alternative data sources, deepening expertise in sophisticated artificial intelligence, data transformation, data ingestion, and API development. The combination of Aicel with FiscalNote will accelerate the continued expansion of its customer base and revenues through a strong network of established partners, as well as sales and marketing relationships with leading firms. Whether it’s Tweets, blog posts, market prices, user information or consumer trends, FiscalNote’s newly acquired tool, Aicel, will sift through a myriad of seemingly nonsensical data and provide users with a structured, insightful path to capturing business opportunities.

WorkHack secures seed round as it helps companies adopt generative AI capabilities into their product suite

WorkHack

OpenAI’s ChatGPT has taken the world by storm since its release in November 2022 and companies have been racing to adopt this in some shape or form in their business processes. Helping these companies embrace the opportunity, WorkHack is today announcing a $1.5M funding round to develop its AI tech layer which allows businesses to deploy safe, thoughtful, and responsible AI functions. The funding round was co-led by Together Fund along with Nexus Venture Partners, and also saw participation from The New Normal Fund led by Allison Pickens along with marquee angel investors. The founder of WorkHack, Akshat Tyagi, was an early stage user of Open AIs original GPT3 model in 2021 and has seen first-hand the development of various large language models (LLMs) since. Despite the widespread interest and adoption of the technology its direct commercial use cases are yet to go beyond copywriting and search chatbots. Moreover, LLMs remain a black box of unknowns for companies to deploy for serious business applications. In recognising the gulf between the technology and business applications, WorkHack has been building tools that allow companies to deploy safe, thoughtful and responsible AI without having to build AI models of their own. Gartner suggests that Responsible AI can enable the right outcomes by resolving dilemmas rooted in delivering value versus tolerating risks. Responsible AI is an umbrella term for aspects of making appropriate business and ethical choices when adopting AI, including business and societal value, risk, trust, transparency, fairness, bias mitigation, explainability, accountability, safety, privacy and regulatory compliance. Responsible AI will take 5 to 10 years to reach mainstream adoption but will ultimately have a transformational impact on business. Established in 2021, WorkHack began working with business in the recruitment industry building AI for interviews using GPT3. After successfully onboarding multiple large enterprise customers within a few months of going live, and realizing the opportunity was much larger than they initially anticipated, the company branched into the marketing-tech sector with use-cases for conversions, consultation journeys, cancellations, habit formation and lead qualification. Today, WorkHack is the infrastructure that provides templates of use cases for companies to build custom conversational agents and deploy them on their own delivery stacks like web, mobile and Whatsapp. WorkHack AI has already made over a million conversations towards specific goals. Gartner has reported that by 2025, 30% of outbound marketing messages from large organizations will be synthetically generated, up from less than 2% in 2022. Akshat Tyagi, founder of WorkHack commented: “ChatGPT is an exciting consumer tool to play with and there is palpable excitement among companies also, even large customer engagement platforms like Intercom, Hubspot and Salesforce have attempted to use generative AI within their current products. WorkHack answers the questions of how to make the adoption scale responsibily. We will be the stable AI layer that enterprises trust for solving their generative AI journey. Our core strength is recognising what areas of human interactions can significantly benefit from a technology that appears to be able to think and reason”. “Many companies are trying and have tried to train their own LLMs for security reasons, but more often than not these do not stand a chance against models built by larger tech companies. WorkHack will be the layer on the top of existing LLMs to make it viable for businesses to move forward with AI adoption” added Akshat Tyagi. "We are thrilled to partner with Workhack, a leading provider of generative AI solutions. As every business will need tools to control and leverage Generative AI to drive better customer engagement, we believe that Workhack is the ideal partner for the businesses to achieve that goal. Workhack's platform makes it seamless for any consumer-facing enterprise to make AI goals driven towards their sales & marketing use cases, in a predictable and secure fashion”. Says Manav Garg, Founding Partner, Together Fund and CEO, Eka “Application layer for generative AI till now has primarily aided activities like copywriting and graphic editing. WorkHack aims to build predictability and goal alignment for companies to deploy and find their own interesting use-cases of Gen AI. We are thrilled to partner with Akshat and WorkHack team to help drive the adoption of Generative AI at scale”, says Jishnu Bhattacharjee, managing director, Nexus Venture Partners. WorkHack is the first large-scale enterprise deployment of ChatGPT’s foundation technology for complex use cases. About WorkHack WorkHack is the guardrail to make ChatGPT and other Large Language Models ready to deploy for complex business outcomes. By building thoughtful, safe and controllable AI, WorkHack is building a layer that eliminates the risk and complexity of using generative AI for real-life usecases. Having processed over a million users for its customers, WorkHack is one of the first companies to deploy generative AI for large-scale enterprises.

Benzinga

In a world where cryptocurrency trading is becoming more prevalent, there is a need for a platform that caters to traders who want to take advantage of the volatility of cryptocurrencies. PrimeXBT is a platform that offers users access to a wide range of cryptocurrencies, traditional asset CFDs, copy trading, contests, and an extensive trading academy. This review will explain why PrimeXBT is a revolutionary crypto futures platform. Advanced trading tools and a user-friendly interface PrimeXBT offers a highly intuitive and user-friendly interface designed to cater to novice and experienced traders. The platform provides a high degree of customization, allowing users to tailor the platform to their specific needs.

The platform also offers advanced charting tools, customizable workspaces, and a variety of technical indicators, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced traders. Unmatched selection of cryptocurrencies One of the standout features of PrimeXBT is its unmatched selection of cryptocurrencies. Traders can trade major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC), as well as numerous altcoins. The platform continually adds new assets based on market demand and trends, providing traders with diverse trading opportunities. In addition to cryptocurrencies, PrimeXBT also offers traditional asset CFDs, including forex, commodities, and stock indices. This includes gold, oil, the S&P 500, and, more recently, PrimeXBT added base industrial metals like copper and lead. The platform provides traders with greater flexibility and convenience, allowing them to diversify their portfolios and take positions in multiple financial markets, all in one place.

PrimeXBT offers both cross and isolated-margin trading across a simple sliding system, allowing traders to adjust risk based on market conditions, available margin, and other factors.

Up to 200x leverage is offered for crypto and up to 1000x for traditional assets. Competitive trading fees and funding rates PrimeXBT charges competitive trading fees for cryptocurrency futures contracts, with most pairs incurring a fee of 0.05%. Additionally, traders must pay a funding rate every 24 hours, which varies depending on the trading pair. The funding rate for most pairs is 0.0694%, while for BTC/USD and ETH/USD, it's 0.0389%. These rates are subject to change based on market conditions and serve as a mechanism to balance long and short positions in the market.
